About

Basstronaut_02_large

This blog was started by me (Zachery Brasier) as a place to share my random thoughts. Since it started to pick up some popularity I added my good friend Scott as another author to get some differing viewpoints on things. The author of individual blog posts are at the top of the post. Here is a short bio for both of us.

Zachery Brasier Bio: I am an astronomy student at Brigham Young University Idaho. I have a diverse set of interests, but mostly I am fascinated with literature, science and film. I lived in Russia for 2 years. I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have a keen interest in finding the middle ground between religion and science. Once I broke my tailbone. It was traumatic. My profile picture sums up everything I want to accomplish in life.

Scott Albright Bio:  I was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and grew up thinking it was normal to live in 110 degree weather. Since graduating high school I have lived in Edmonton Canada and Provo, Utah and learned otherwise. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It was in Canada that I served my two year mission for the church and continue to happily do my best to live my religion. I currently attend Brigham Young University where my major is Physiology and Developmental Biology; a topic I am surprisingly passionate about. I also enjoy reading fiction, science-fiction, history, and some psychology/sociology.

  1. Hey Zachery! I was wondering if you are OK? You were writing quite a bit for a while then just stopped. Hope everything is alright with you. I look forward to reading more articles.

  2. After a few (years it seems) I’ve decided to unsubscribe to this blog. So little of what is posted here is of even the remotest interest to me. As a member of the Church, I find these contents extremely bizarre (strange, weird, disconcerting). However, in coming to that observation, the journey has been eye opening to diversity within the Church. We are simply different. And that’s okay.

  3. Hello there, Zach!

    I saw your well written list at ListVerse and was inspired to be like you. I want to make a living (and hopefully a fortune through writing). I have some questions if you don’t mind. I know you can help me become successful as well.

    1. What are the things you wish you knew before starting to write at ListVerse?
    2. How long does the ListVerse editors usually reply regarding the status of your submitted list?
    3. How long before they pay you at PayPal upon publishing of your article?

    Thank you Zach. I hope you can help me out.

    Best Regards,

    Don Atienza

    • Thanks for reading and contacting. Listverse is a great place to get started writing. To answer your questions:
      1. Just make sure that your lists are unique. I’ve spent time on lists that didn’t make the cut because they were to similar to other lists. So make sure you do your research.
      2. Usually I hear back within two weeks. As I’ve done more lists they get back faster.
      3. They pay within 3-7 days after deciding to publish.

      Hope that helped.

  4. Big Star Wars fan, blog title from an Amnesiac b-side, Mormon, PD Bio major; seems like we should have met were I still at BYU! Except I studied biophysics, but all the same. Great blog! Glad I saw the link to your Poe Dameron post on Reddit.

    • Thanks. Hope you check back for more articles in the future. I am super busy with my degree right now so a lot of my writing time is going to Listverse (because the actually pay me) but I update pretty regularly. Noticing that my blog name is from a Radiohead B-side means you’ll probably like the other stuff on my blog.

  5. Hey I just found your blog today because of the post about 4 ways that we can fix the Mormon Culture. Awesome points you made! I am in the bishopric in our ward here in West Virginia and really feel like this is a great ward because we are so far away from the culture of the church. I grew up in Utah and also attended BYU-Idaho. Years went by that I didn’t feel like I enjoyed church. I went because of my wife and my 3 kids. One day I realized that the doctrine of the church is narrow and the culture is very wide. After I realized that I became more loving of others and started to enjoy church more. I have come closer to my savior. I miss my time at BYU-Idaho and wish I could go back. I graduated in 2010 and it has changed to much already. Again thank you for your viewpoints and I will be following your blog from now on. I’m glad I found it. P.S. I learned about organic evolution in a BYU-Idaho class. I thought it was an awesome class but many times I overheard people leaving that class talking about how the teacher was teaching false doctrine. Now that I laugh at those people and realize they were the ones that made me not enjoy the LDS church. HAHA.
    Thanks,
